Domtar is a firm believer in giving back. Our corporate citizenship aligns with three pillars: literacy, health and wellness, and sustainability. Find out how we made the world a better place in 2016.
Sustainability is good for the environment, but can it also benefit the bottom line? Research shows that companies with a strong culture of sustainability boast more productive employees, stronger employee loyalty and greater brand strength.
Through its Powerful Pages initiative, Domtar has supported First Book and Classroom Central for many years. Recently, the organizations worked together to purchase and distribute 40,000 free books to teachers in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area.
Hurricane Matthew devastated parts of North Carolina and South Carolina. In addition to Domtar’s corporate donations, our colleagues stepped up to provide hurricane relief to local communities and fellow employees affected by the storm.
Camp Blue Skies creates a safe environment for adults with developmental disabilities to experience an overnight camp. Domtar is proud to partner with this organization and encourages colleagues to volunteer their time at one of the camp sessions.
Domtar colleagues worked side by side with members of the Student Conservation Association to help restore parts of a wildlife park in Kamloops, British Columbia. It’s the latest event in our four-year partnership with the SCA.
Thanks to the support of Domtar and its vendor partners, eight schools opened Ben Carson Reading Rooms this summer, giving students a fun place to read books. Domtar sponsored 10 reading rooms in 2016.
Sustainability is an important part of everything we do. It’s simply part of who we are. We recently published Domtar’s 2016 sustainability update to share our progress over the past 18 months.
When Domtar’s Rothschild Mill was asked by the Wisconsin DNR to help relocate nesting ospreys, the mill donated and cleared land for a new elevated nesting platform. The project helps protect the state’s growing osprey population.
